Ray Tango (Sylvester Stallone) and Gabe Cash (Kurt Russell) are rival LA. policemen with one thing in common: each thinks he is the best. Team them and they're like oil and water. But frame them for a crime and they're like a match and kerosene. Stallone and Russell deliver sweaty excitement, sex appeal and outrageous laughs in this action-comedy from the director of Runaway Train. The two stage a prison breakout that's a breathless rush of weapons and wisecracks — then roar after the shadowy crimelord (Jack Palance) who set them up. Tango & Cash are out to clear their names. Join them and feel the rush.
No po-faced navel-gazing cops here
- Tango and Cash review by AS
If you don't like dumb action movies, stay away. But you must watch if you appreciate a crime caper that never lets up, delivers scores of snappy one-liners, and, above all, doesn't take itself too seriously. Stallone and Russell were oh-so-young here yet already had charisma by the bucketload. Add Teri Hatcher and you've got popcorn entertainment that'll keep you hooked to the final over-the-top showdown.
